Mitos Sauvignon blanc – Assyrtiko
P.G.I SLOPES OF AIGIALEIA
This wine is a proof of how well Sauvignon Blanc combines with Assyrtiko. As complementary varieties their blend gives us a distinctive white and golden colour and bares aromas of tropical fruits, fresh citrus, green pepper and asparagus all in a background of profound acidity –characteristic of all the quality varieties of the area. Acidity and a sense of freshness balance its rich body acquired through “sur lies” contact and give this wine a harmonious sense that evolves in the mouth and ends with a pleasant and intensively aromatic finish.
The varieties of this wine grow in vineyards of the regions Valmi, Kounina and the summits of Kalavrita on an altitude of 800-900m. These are soils of mud, chalk and clay on a geological background of sandstone and conglomerates with siltstone layers. Their yields are no more than 70hl/ha.
